History San José

History San José (HSJ) is Silicon Valley’s largest and most comprehensive historical organization. Our mission is to collect, preserve and celebrate the stories of diversity and innovation in San José and the Santa Clara Valley.

History San José operates three locations: History Park — a historical and cultural campus featuring 19 partner organizations who each tell their own history in their own words; the Peralta Adobe-Fallon House Historic Site — one of the oldest and most significant locales in San José; and the Collection Center — the Valley’s collective memory.

Every day we continue to collect contemporary history documenting the social and political happenings in the Valley. We preserve a collection of more than 500,000 artifacts, including a Research Library and Archive used by locals as well as a world-wide audience. We celebrate the Valley’s history by creating exhibitions featuring the collections; by engaging the community in fun hands-on family programs and events; and by offering award-winning, standards-based school programs for over 20,000 students and their teachers each year.
